US Immigration Update (October 1, 2020): The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted the motion for preliminary injunction temporarily halting the implementation of USCIS final fee rule in its entirety and on a nationwide basis. This means that the new fee increases have been STOPPED, at least for now. We will update this webpage with information and guidance on further developments. Please check back frequently.

What happens next?
The Government (USCIS) will likely appeal to the 9th Circuit court to get the fee increases pushed through. However, no one knows when the appeal will happen or what the result of the appeal will be.

What does this mean for you?
No one knows if or when the new fees will be made effective, but as long as the injunction is in place the USCIS cannot raise fees. Taking into consideration that fees could go up for many applications at any time, it's generally a good idea to prepare & file your Green Card or Citizenship applications sooner rather than later.

See the chart below to see the differences in the current vs new fees.

REPLACING I-94 ARRIVAL-DEPARTURE RECORD USING FORM I-102

Replacing I-94 Arrival-Departure Record using Form I-102

Form I-94 is provided by the airline (or transportation carrier) to the foreign visitor and is filled out by that person. Upon entering the United States at an authorized Port of Entry, the filled out I-94 is reviewed by a U.S. Customer Border Protection (CBP) Officer. Generally, the CBP officer will update the I-94 arrival-departure indicating your arrival date into the U.S. and the date your expected departure from the U.S.

Form I-102 is used to apply for a new, or replacement of lost, destroyed or incorrect Arrival-Departure Record. Foreign nationals entering as nonimmigrant visitors to the United States may use Form I-102 for obtaining a new or replacing the following documents:

  • Arrival Departure Record, Form I-94
  • Visa Waiver Arrival-Departure Record, Form I-94W; or
  • Crewman Landing Permit, Form I-95

Regardless of the reason in filing Form I-102 certain supporting documents will be required to submit along with your application in order to further support eligibility. Preparing your Form I-102 online provides you with easy step-by-step guidance that will ensure that you have completed the application correctly.
